Location was excellent and I liked how uncluttered the house is. That's what attracted me to book it. On the minus side, there was a kind of emptiness of not being cared for in some way that was difficult. The sofa and chairs were badly stained and even torn. The bathroom didn't feel clean, especially the floor. The mattress in the main bedroom is quite small and short and doesn't fit properly on the bed frame, which led to a few bumped shins. We needed to cook a little and it wasn't well set up for cooking, with just one old non-stick pan that's pretty worn out. So it had plusses and minuses, but for this price level, it didn't measure up to what I've experienced at other AirBnB's.
The house is prefect place to spend a week or two in San-Francisco neighborhood. Location is good for visiting all SF sights as well as for exploring more distant areas like Sonopa/Napa valley or Big Sur - you can easily drive and return same day. Almost forgot to mention "Hot Tub" - it is really great stuff, especially in winter:)
The house was a nice private escape. Lots of privacy on a very quiet street. Sparsely decorated, refreshingly nice remodeled bathroom, hottub was a treat! It was overall a great stay.
Wonderful light-filled space in a fabulous location! Such an easy, hassle free rental and I can't wait to return.
This was our 2nd stay at Yuh-Shioh's house. It's simplicity is perfect for our needs. A wonderful place to stay. Communication with the property manager is quick and easy.
This bungalow is precisely as described in the host's listing. While the decor is minimal, natural lighting provides a very warm environment. The kitchen is perfect for preparing meals at home and the beds are very comfortable with quality linens. Washer/dryer are a plus! This Berkeley neighborhood is quiet, very accessible to BART (by car) for day trips into San Francisco and local shopping is in walking distance. I will definitely try to book Yuh-Shioh's home for my next trip to the Bay Area.
Yuh-Shioh's place is wonderful. Very serene but convenient location. The kitchen is great for serious cooking and the house was comfortable without being overstuffed. Very friendly and clear communications with the property manager. Highly recommended!
It has been a delight staying in this beautiful home. It has a wonderful vibe, light and airy in a quiet neighbourhood. The check in was seamless and everything was exactly as described. The hot tub was a great hit. Close to the shops and restaurants on Solano Ave. loved Sweet Basil Thai Restaurant in Solano. We would recommend it. Easy 20 minute walk to the El Cerritos BART station.
So happy for you that you enjoyed your stay at our place in Berkeley! Welcome back anytime!
The place was clean and comfortable and it was easy to access the house. Shops and supermarkets were nearby. BART was not very close, but was about 30 min walking distance. Overall very pleasant space and location and host was responsive.
Thank you for staying at our place Nicholas! Welcome back anytime!
This Bungalow is a very charming and pleasant place that includes a nice backyard. The place is very open (not a lot of clutter, and a long open space across living/dining/kitchen areas) and has a lot of light. The location is residential and quiet but close to Solano Av. where there are plenty of shops and restaurants. A word of caution depending on your preferences/necessities: the house does not have a TV (no problem for us), a microwave (small inconvenience) or blinders/curtains in the rooms (if you have trouble sleeping with light, that will be a big problem). Our interaction (all by email) with Yuh-Shioh was good and courteous, but we were quite disappointed with the booking/check-in handling (done through a concierge service - guesthop, which we did not realize until later since we were exchanging emails supposedly with the owner via airbnb). In summary, we made a a reservation for two adults but informing we had a small child that could sleep on a travel bed that we would carry but were told we would have to pay for a third person (we understood; no problem). To update it, we had to cancel and rebook again, but while doing it the price was highly inflated (way more than the extra 20USD p/ extra person p/night of our original quote) which was, at minimal, very strange and did not feel right. We then refused to pay that amount stating the reason above and were told that maybe it was "airbnb fees", which we knew were not since those come itemized and was the "price per night" that had been inflated. In any case, after we reported that we were offered a special deal which we accepted. We were told by Yuh-Shioh we would get an email from guesthop with all the directions for checking in and use of the house. We waited until two days before arrival when we called Emily at guesthop and were told she would send us all info that day or the next at the latest. We waited and nothing, at which point we emailed Yuh-Shioh again since we were expecting someone to meet us there and would have to arrange a time, etc. Finally, we got the email with instructions for self check-in and were told (several times) to just to come in after 3PM. So we did, but when we arrived the house was still being cleaned and there were some minor issues associated with that. We did not mind this at all, but felt that all together it reflected less professionalism than would be expected from a company that specializes in concierge services/welcoming guests into rental places. The initial interaction with guesthop (by email and phone) and the feeling that we were perhaps being taken advantage of (with the price/booking issue) tainted our experience, which otherwise was quite pleasant and comfortable.
A great quest and we'd love to have her back anytime.
Quiet, respectful, and good communication.
